New SC owner looking for a Case

I just got a Theta SC last weekend and now looking for a case,

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good case? Quick and easy to use. It doesn't need to be a waterproof case.

Note that I am looking for a case or some people call it glove. Not a bag.

I like my phone case which made of TPU. It is a haft way between Rubber & Plastic material. It flexible like Rubber but not too soft like silicone and won't crack like hard plastic.
I am looking for a Theta case made of TPU and I can not find one (Yet)!
something like this one on eBay seems to be a perfect design for me but not the material used.Silikon Haut Hülle Schutz Abdeckung Linse Deckel Für Ricoh Theta S SC KamerC | eBay


The explanation said it is silicone.. SOFT silicone! I don't like that soft silicone thing. it sticks to cloth fabric and attracts dust particles like nobody business.
or
Anyone use a similar case as seen on eBay link? what do you think about it? Give me a review. It might not be better than what I think?

Thank you in advance

I have this case for a Theta S, and it works well.

It's reasonably protective; slim; and has a magnetic closure to allow it to open silently.


Note that it is open on the sides; so it's not complete protection for a rough-and-tumble environment. But I've found it to be more than adequate when throwing it into a laptop bag or backpack. And having a belt clip is a nice feature.

Ooops, photo missing

You're welcome; and please note that my photo attached to the post appears to have been eaten; but I've edited the post to include a link. Good luck!

My Theta S (same size as the SC) snugly sits in an old sun glasses hard case of one of my wife's old sun glasses. It's just about the most perfect fit for the Theta S in its original protective "bag" that it came in out-of-the-box. If you still have some cases for old glasses, you might want to try these out and recycle before buying new?


Actually, this case is the main reason why I'm hesitating to upgrade to the Theta Z1.
